We recently spent 3 beautiful days at Parautune Lodge. The last bit of the drive up the hill is a little " exciting" ,but it was well worth it. We were greeted by Allan on arrival and found he and his wife ,Candice, to be the perfect hosts. The rooms were comfortable and air conditioned ,and the deck outside was... More

Unfortunately we couldn't stay here longer. When we arrived we were shown to our room and Candice brought us fresh baked cookies. The room was nicely furnished. The bathroom was very modern with a "new" look to it. The breakfast the next morning was lovely. We look forward to staying here again.

We arrived at Parautane Lodge in the late afternoon as a tropical storm made its way into the Nelson area. The visibility wasn’t that great as we made our way up the gravel road and we unknowingly ended up parking next to the owner’s cars and not in the guest parking lot. Our hosts, Candace and Alan were keeping an... More

Great relaxing destination. We arrived late and awoke to the view below. It's quite a climb up to the Lodge, but once there, it is well worth it. In the morning we had a fabulous cooked breakfast and Candice and Alan were a lovely welcoming couple. From there it was 10 minutes down the road to the Nelson summer market!... More

From the first welcome cuppa and cookies we found friendly hospitality and attention to our needs. I chose omelets for breakfast, but there was plenty of choice. The views were expansive and stunning sunsets gave us camera- perfect shots. Alan and the team, you were great! We needed this time of relaxation, but there's plenty to do within an hours... More

Luxurious well appointed rooms with direct access to deck giving splendid views over the bay. We were very well looked after by our hosts. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone who is prepared to endure some difficulty in driving the last 1.5kms. It is worth it!!

If you enjoy friendly hosts, superb home-style cooking, luxurious well appointed rooms and stupendous views across the bay to distant mountains then look no further than Parautane Lodge, just a ten minute drive out of Nelson. We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights and really appreciated the kind hospitality of Alan and Candace who fed us splendidly and even smiled at... More
